My name is Dan Wall. I torment students at Iḷisaġvik College in Barrow Alaska. Previous to this, I menaced the students at Diné College on the Navajo Nation. Somewhere in there, I also did a stint as PR for an animal shelter, and I even taught for a year at the Robert M. Beren Academy in Houston, Texas. Mostly, my life’s work has been with tribal colleges (’Life’s work’ that’s a pretentious phrase! Ah well, I’m keeping it.) Mostly, I teach social sciences, but occasionally I get to teach something else. One of the subjects I have been lucky enough to teach on both the Navajo Nation and here on the North Slope of Alaska is an Introduction to Logic. This blog is a reflection of that teaching as well as a long term interest in the way people reason.
I also blog at northierthanthou.com. That’s where I let my sarcasm out to play.
